Some online users were quick to put malice on Miss Universe PH Beatrice Luigi Gomez offering a piggyback ride to Miss Armenia Nane Avetisyan.
Note the sweet scene was captured on video.
It was uploaded on the official Twitter account of the Miss Universe pageant.
Among the reactions:
“Bea crown ang iuuwi ah?”
“Go mamshie wag mag pa distract sa mga beautiful ladies dyan.”
“Bea, focus muna tayo sa korona! Sige iuwi mo ng sabay ang korona at ang pagibig!”
Note that Bea came out as a proud member of the LGBTQIA+ community prior.
She broke up with her girlfriend of almost seven years, Kate Jagdon, recently.
Meanwhile, recently, veteran TV host Boy Abunda uploaded the rigorous training for the question-and-answer portion that Bea had under him.
In there, the King of Talk advised Bea to “just go to your words, go to your core, go to your instinct and go to your rationality.”
“Never look for approval because the moment you look for approval and validation, that’s where you fall,” he related.
The 70th edition annual international beauty pageant will be happening on Dec. 12 (the morning of Dec. 13 in the Philippines).
